You can compare Caden’s eight month stats here.

Sleeping: Still sleeps from 7:30PM – 6:30AMish.  He goes down for his first nap at 9:30Am and he’ll sleep about 1 hour 15 minutes/45 minutes.  His second nap is at 2PM and he’ll sleep the same length of time.

Nursing: Nurses about 6 times a day, after every time he wakes and right before he goes down to sleep.

Foods:  New this month:  Sweet potato (he didn’t prefer it mashed but was semi-interested in it when I gave him a big hunk.  He played with and inspected and tasted a little bit.)  Avocado- not really a big fan. He made the biggest gagging face.  But he did enjoy a wholly guacamole pouch.  I’m not sure why he like that better… the flavor/seasonings?

Likes:  still only mommy,

Dislikes: he still screams whenever I set him down to go do anything, so between him and Caden I barely get anything done when they’re awake.  From about 4PM til bedtime is NOT FUN AT ALL.

Nicknames: Seo

Development: almost crawling (when laying on his tummy on a hard surface he can pull himself and scootch a little bit), sitting mostly by himself (he still falls over some)

Teeth: new this month: bottom right central incisor

Sleeping:  naps- On April 7 we tried switching to 2 naps a day since napping was so bad.  Each nap was such a struggle and we were lucky to get 30 minutes.  It took a few weeks but it is SO much better now!  Sleeping at night is great.  Still sleeping from about 7:30PM-6AM.  Below are more detailed notes of how his first two days of 2-a-day naps went.

day 1:
-put him down night before at asleep at 7:08pm til 5:22am {10hr 14min}
-fed him and put back down, asleep at 6:04am til 8:06am {2hr 2min}
-1st nap at 10:15AM til 11:19am {1hr 4 min}
-2nd nap at 2:22pm til 2:53pm {31 min}, CRIED until 5:08pm, asleep at 5:03pm til 5:08pm {5 minutes}, asleep at 5:10pm til 5:31pm {21 minutes}
-7:23 asleep for night

day 2:
-put him down night before at 7:23pm (sleep) til 5:04AM (on april 8)
-fed him and put back down, asleep at 5:47 til 7:27am, up for day
-first nap at 9:45AM, slept 36 min (woke at 10:21), cried for 6 mins, asleep at 10:27 -11:49 (1 hr 22mins)
-2nd nap, asleep at 2:12 – 2:51 {39 min} (cried for 4 mins), asleep at 2:55-3:46 {51 min}
-asleep at 7:22pm

Nursing:  He nurses about every 3 hours.  I usually nurse him right when he wakes up from a nap and right before he goes down so he’ll sleep longer.

Foods:  (In order of introduction) Bone broth (not a big fan but he’ll drink a bit more if there is breast milk mixed with it) and egg yolk (looooves it!)

Likes: mommy mommy mommy and ONLY mommy (apparently Caden had the same issue at this time so there IS hope!), laughing at his brother, baths, scratching his fingers on the back of the couch while I’m nursing him.

Dislikes: when I leave him alone to do anything or if anyone else takes him, really isn’t taking to food at all like Caden did (might have a picky eater on our hands),

Teeth:  bottom left central incisor

I got this ball at the thrift store and it is such a good motivator for him to sit up. It rolls around on its own and plays music so it’s a constant distraction.

March 16 – Started sitting up. I still have to sit behind him or put my leg or pillow behind him because he does fall back.

April 1- FIRST “FOODS” bone broth, tried on spoon- too liquidy and he knocked bowl over bc he was flailing (excited) so we put in a bottle. He only drank about .5 oz. Next day or so I added about .25oz breast milk to ~1 oz broth and he liked it much better.

Theo – 6 Months

6 months {February 10-March 10}

Smiliest baby in the world… seriously.  The ONLY time he’s not smiling is when I lay him down for a nap or when I turn my back on him (serious attachment issues right now).  But!  If I’m holding him he will willingly give a ginormous smile to anyone who is looking at him.

We were ALL sick the WHOLE month.  Seriously 4+ weeks of sickness.  I’m not even sure if we left the house in those 4 weeks.  I haven’t been that sick for that long in a loooong time.

Sleep:  Still doing 3 naps a day and it is not going too well.  I put him down after being awake for 1.5-2 hours and he’ll usually fall asleep after a few minutes of crying but he wakes up almost every time after 30 minutes and does not go back to sleep.

Eating: We set up the highchair for him and he loves sitting there playing with his toys.  We got the Graco Blossom (Amaaazzingg highchair- I absolutely recommend it!  Watch a video on all of the different ways you can use it.)  I might start offering him a spoon or maybe even spooning breast milk into his mouth to get him used to it.  He is still nursing every 3 hours.  I can’t seem to get ANY milk to come out when I pump.  So I’m kind of attached to Theo…  I have a 3 hour leash.  So different than with Caden.  I have no clue what I’m going to do about his feeding situation.

Likes: Sucking on his toes all of the time.  Being attached to mommy 24-7.  Big brother.  Daddy.  Toby.

Dislikes: He does not like being apart from me, even if we’re one foot apart.  No matter who is holding him, if he sees or hears me, he will start crying uncontrollably but if I go pick him up, he stops right away and is fine.  It’s equally funny and annoying, haha.  Napping longer than 30 minutes during the day.

Feb 19 –  Got sick with bad cold/virus.  Had to have him nap in swing during day and elevate his mattress again so he could breathe (barely).  So much snot, watery eyes, didn’t nurse as much, fever of 100.4, 14 lbs 12.5 oz  (I think the sickness showed up for me on the same day as Theo).

Feb 23 – I took Theo to our pediatrician where he got a nebulizer treatment because I heard a rattling in his chest.  The treatment didn’t help his breathing which apparently means he doens’t have asthma but he did test positive for RSV.  No medicine for RSV… just had to ride it out.  He weighed in at 15 lbs.

Mar 3- noticed he’s definitely becoming much more clingy to me.  If I leave his eyesight and he is in someone elses care, he will def cry.  I think we’re going to have even worse separation anxiety with him than we did with Caden.
